The Multinational Force and Observers (MFO), headquartered in Rome, is an international organization, created by agreement between the Arab Republic of Egypt and the State of Israel, with peacekeeping responsibilities in the Sinai Peninsula.
The mission of the MFO is to supervise the implementation of the security provisions of the Egyptian-Israeli Treaty of Peace and employ best efforts to prevent any violation of its terms.
The MFO offers a range of employment opportunities to civilians who form the backbone of our mission of peace in support of Egypt and Israel.
Currently, we employ a total of approximately 140 direct hire international civilian staff across our offices in Rome, Tel Aviv, and Cairo and two military bases in Sinai, Egypt. Most international employment contracts are for two-years renewable, with either single or accompanied status, and include free housing and comprehensive medical coverage. MFO international civilian employees may also be eligible for tax reimbursement. The base salary scale for international civilian employees is provided below.
MFO international civilian employees assigned to the Sinai also enjoy free meals, recreational facilities, and annual travel benefits. For positions based in the Sinai, Egypt, the MFO prefers individuals with prior Middle East experience and who are self-starters with excellent communications skills. They should have the ability to live in a relatively austere environment.
